Dirty Old Town - Harmonica Tabs & Lesson

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

Hello! In this harmonica lesson we'll be playing the harmonica intro to The Pogues' version of Dirty Old Town on a D diatonic harmonica. This song was originally written by Ewan MacColl about Salford. This is a great song for beginners, with no bends but plenty of opportunity to practise moving around the instrument.

Here are the harp tabs for Dirty Old Town:

A: 3 4 -4 5 4 -4 5 4 3 B: 5 6 -6 6 5 -4 4 5

C: 3 4 5 -4 4
